Just Magnolia Challenge - Summer


Today is the start of another challenge over at Just Magnolia. The theme for this week is Summer. I have coloured my image with distress inks. For the giraffe image I inked directly onto my stamp using different distress ink pads. I cut them out using nesties. I distressed the background and papers with weathered wood. The little flowers are quickutz. I have added some stickles for some sparkle. The paper and lace were my Magnolia dt kit.

I have been sent these awards by two gorgeous blogging buddies. Thank you so much girls I am so happy that you have passed these onto me. I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits my blog as you are the best!

This is from Hanna xxx

Please take a look at the rest of the Just Magnolia teams cards they are simply stunning!

Before I go. I will be demoing at Crafts U Love on Saturday. If you are in the area I would so love to say hello!

Have a perfectly fabulous weekend the weather is looking hot, hot, hot!

Fantastic take on the challenge Kim and what fabulous images so wonderfully dispayed. I reckon there will be lots of people packing up their vechicles like that this summer and heading for wherever the road takes them - especially with the exchange rate as it is.
Have a fun filled day tomorrow, just sorry I can´t be there.
